have admired the whole of my professional life, if not my whole life, reverend jackson has been an inspiration to me in everything he has done. i grew up knowing who this man is, and what he represents and the struggles he went through to have a national conversation in every major city and he's going to tell you about other things going on. perhaps even worse than san francisco or oakland or san jose, but i can't rest on the lores that we might be better in employment. we might be better not having that many homicides but we lost a lot of the african-american community in the last 10-20 years. we lost the redevelopment agency that gave a lot of promises. i am trying to keep those promises, but i've got to find more and better ways to interrupt the violence, and i want today to register a personal appeal to our religious leaders to help me do that, find ways. i suspect it's not about money. it's not about numbers of jobs. it's about who we talk about and who we relate to, and how can we penetrate barriers or vacuums where there is no conversations going on? how do we ta

small one car garage at the corner of jackson and presidio and they are extending that all the way back to the back wall of the original building to house five cars. now, to do that obviously they will have to totally destroy the floor on the lower level, so they also extended that all the way back to the rear wall to add additional space and room and such. in order to have bedrooms and the space and that excavated area they need new windows for those rooms. this assembling a 1915 building so potential historic resource so you have all new windows in the lower level which would have possibly change the kaish of this potential resources. under the normal circumstances if the total scope of the project was presented to the planning department it would have to under go environmental review as well as historic resource evaluation. this particular project has a series of five permits, six permits, and they have -- going to be a few more so we don't know the total scope of this project, and the department at this point, and i think this board looking at the permits on appeal it's very dif
